Projects benefiting an NYC open space—including parks, community gardens, street trees, green streets, plazas, water bodies, and NYCHA communities are eligible to have their ioby crowdfunding campaign matched. If approved, the NYC Green Fund contributes one dollar for every dollar raised-up to $2,500!
